Maple and Walnut Wall Mounted Coat Rack

Used some leftover Maple tongue and groove floor for the vertical backing (this is mounted with glue on 1 inch plywood). Mitered in Walnut stock at 45 degree angles for the hooks to hang coats and garments on. Border is also Walnut.

First posting here. Thanks for all the welcome mails!

Unusual. Very nice. I like it when people don’t just do the same as everyone else. Welcome to LJ’s.

Great design. I will call this a new mousetrap for hanging clothes. Welcome to LJ. The tough part now is to design an even newer, and better mouse trap.Again, a winner out of the starting gate. Thank you.

great coat rack! i’ve got some extra t&g maple as well, so the inspiration is definitely appreciated. How did you attach the walnut hooks so they would be strong? great work!

Hey All… Thanks so much for the positive constructive feedback. Well taken and noted…
gvajcner – re attaching the hooks – first I chiseled out the tongue on one side of vertical pieces so it would slide in at a 45, then reinforced with a wood screw (used a countersink drill bit to have the screw head flush) that goes into the backing board, finished with glue. I think I could hang all the coats, scarves, gloves, etc I own on just one of those hooks and it would hold!
I’m trying to get my other projects in order for posting but just gotta find the time! Thanks again!!
